7:00 am
good morning to our viewers in the west. it's monday, october 1st, 2012. welcome to "cbs this morning." a suicide bomber targets nato troops in afghanistan. at least 14 are dead. we'll ask john miller about the dangerous new link between the taliban and al qaeda. as the candidates focus on wednesday's debate, a top republican predicts we'll see a brand-new race on thursday. around schwarzenegger tells "60 minutes" he still wants his family to forgive him. we'll show you part of that interview you didn't see last night. we begin the today's eye opener. your world in 90 seconds. >> breaking news in eastern afghanistan. >> at least three nato troops killed in a suicide plan. >> the attacker ran his motorcycle packed with explos e explosives into a u.s. military
7:01 am
convoy. >> after all these years of war? >> the reason for the nato and american intervention is terrorism. terrorism has not gone away. >> governor romney, he's a good debater. i'm just okay. >> governor romney, president obama gearing up for their first presidential debate on wednesday. >> i don't think one of them is going to make or break this campaign. >> thursday morning we're all going to be scratching our heads and saying, wow, we have a barn burner now for the next 33 days. >> maria asked you, why didn't you tell me? what did you say? >> that i did not know how to. >> the thing that really meant the most to me kind of fell apart because of my doing. i will always look back and say, how could you have done that? >> in japan, the powerful and destructive typhoon capture on tape by an american marine. >> holy [ bleep ]. >> lindsay lohan reportedly recovering from a scuffle with a
7:02 am
man over photos he took of her on his cell phone. >> we're told the deer wasn't injured and the skateboarder is probably still eating some dust. >> no, no! down! >> he just pile drives donald jones. >> touchdown! does his dance. >> and all that matters. >> the european staged an epic comeback to win the ryder cup. >> on "cbs this morning.." >> the genius behind the idea that you play a fictional character on tv who has now real influence. are you surprised by that? >> oprah? could you say the word "genius" again? captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." we awake to yet another deadly attack in afghanistan. the taliban is taking responsibility for the latest attack against nato troops.
7:03 am
at least 14 people including three western troops were killed. >> this morning's attacks come on the heels of a weekend incident that left two americans dead in eastern afghanistan. charlie dagada reports from the capital, kabul. >> reporter: afghan sources tell cbs news a suicide bomber approached a joint patrol between afghan and coalition forces in eastern afghanistan before detonating his explosive vest. a coalition spokesman has confirmed that three nato service members have been killed. they won't release the nationalities pending notification of the next of kin. that's the policy. it is in an area patrolled almost exclusively by u.s. forces. at least ten afghan police and civilians were killed in the attack that the taliban has already claimed responsibility for. this comes after an incident over the weekend where it appears that u.s. soldiers and afghan soldiers got into a fire fight at a check point southwest of kabul. an american soldier and an american civilian were killed in
7:04 am
that attack along with three afghan soldiers. it is still under investigation. but what it underlines is the challenges and difficulties of u.s. soldiers working alongside armed afghan soldiers and police on the battlefield. we joined a team of u.s. soldiers at a check point in a volatile area north of kandahar. and this is a unit that had been involved in a joint operation before it was called off. they're currently in the process of vetting every single member that they're working with. and they say that -- the commanders tell us they have a long checklist that they have to review before they resume these joint operations. the events over the weekend may put some of those operations, these vital operations, on hold. for "cbs this morning," i'm charlie dagada in kabul. as the violence rages in afghanistan the taliban is claiming now to have closer ties with al qaeda. lara logan reported from afghanistan on last night's "60 minutes" and spoke to one
7:05 am
taliban commander under some nerve-racking conditions. >> reporter: one taliban commander agrees to meet with us in the afghan capital. he's a specialist in suicide bombings trained by al qaeda. the safest place we could find was the back of a car. and he would only talk if we concealed his identity. as we made our way through the streets, we had to avoid the city's heavy security and keep our cameras hidden from view. who's behind the insider attacks, what the americans call insider attacks? infiltrating the afghan police and army. is that you? >> translator: these are taliban attacks. this is part of our new military strategy. we have our people in the afghan police and the army. and the orders come from the top. >> reporter: he told us al qaeda fighters are rushing to afghanistan. and that he has more than a dozen of them under his command. he also said they've been the driving force that has made the
7:06 am
taliban more lethal on the battlefield. are you the only commander with al qaeda fighters? >> translator: there are many groups that have them. we can't do this without them. >> reporter: what skills do the al qaeda fighters bring? >> translator: they are masters at everything. for example, making ieds. something we don't know how to do. but they are teaching us. they are also master engineers and good with all weapons. when your weapons break, they are the ones who repair them. we can't do this without them. >> senior correspondent john miller is a former assistant director of national intelligence. good morning. >> good morning. >> why this resurgence? >> you know, there's something ironic here, charlie, which is watch out what you wish for. or the victim of your own success. regions in pakistan have become so dangerous for al qaeda because of the drone strikes and the intelligence ability to locate them and take them out, a lot of al qaeda members, because there is very little command and control left within the
7:07 am
organization, have found their way back to afghanistan and to the taliban who can put them to work. as we just heard from lara logan's taliban interviewee. they're doing that. >> they're bringing skills that they don't have, she suggested. >> that's right. at a much higher level. honed after years of practice. >> john, we've got the attacks over the weekend and again this morning. you know, the white house, john brennan, the head of counterterrorism there at the white house has said as recently as april that al qaeda is a shadow of its former self. morale is low. in the past al qaeda has been decimated in afghanistan. is that true? >> it's all true. one of the problems we have, we want all the lines to be neat. the taliban to be in their box and al qaeda in their box. same thing in benghazi. al sharia. what has happened as the organizations have broken down, because we have decimated them, groups of people who are still following the same narrative
7:08 am
have spread around. and the lines have gotten blurrier, but the narrative hasn't. >> general allen made the point al qaeda in small numbers can do large damage. >> they're not -- they're asymmetrical warriors. they don't come with lots of people. the taliban is much more like an army than al qaeda. al qaeda is on the idea of one plot. it's based on terrorism. it's not based on fighting brigade to brigade. they're very effective the way they work. >> john, you actually knew one of the military contractors who was killed over the weekend, right? >> in the latest incident. that was kevin o'rourke. a hero cop in new york. he worked here at emergency service unit 1 in manhattan. then he trained the scuba divers for the nypd. then he was a sergeant in the emergency squad during 9/11. worked in the rescue efforts. he loved training cops anywhere. which is what he was doing back
7:09 am
in afghanistan as a contractor. >> john miller, thank you. >> reporter: much. now to presidential politics. the first debate is coming up on wednesday. usually both sides try to lower expectations for their candidates. that's what president obama did on sunday. but one of mitt romney's leading supporters had a different view. >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who's going to have the best zingers, who's going to put the most points on the board. governor romney, he's a good debater. i'm just okay. >> i've seen mitt romney do this before. he's going to come in wednesday night. he's going to lay out his vision for america. he's going to contrast with what his view is with what the president's record is. the president's view for the future. this whole race is going to be turned upsidedown come thursday morning. >> national journalist white house correspondent major garrett is with us. good morning. >> great to be with you. >> what surprise might we expect? what's the strategy for these two going into this debate? >> why did governor christie say what he said? he knows governor romney needs
7:10 am
an audience. if you look at the national polling data, abc/"washington post" has a poll out this morning. two-thirds of the country already believes president obama's going to win. he's going to win the debates. they're not going to tune in if they don't think there's something exciting going on or likely to go on. governor christie said, yes, tune in. we're going to change this race. if it isn't changed by thursday this debate doesn't fundament fundamentally alter the underlying tone of the race, it's going to slip away. >> does it create rising expectations? >> of course it does. on the other hand the president has been systematically lowering expectations. david axelrod started talking to me, the president's really out of practice. it's been so long since he's been on a podium like this. they are systematically trying to say if romney scores, it doesn't matter. it will matter. that's what we'll tune in for. >> mitt romney, know know we kn
7:11 am
high negativenegatives. perhaps a likeability problem. >> zingers and one liners in presidential debates resonate because they fit within a larger narrative. i'll tell you now the two campaigns understand this about the narrative. the obama campaign has been better at framing it around mitt romney than mitt romney has been framing it around the president. the obama campaign believes even if there are devastating or memorable zingers, if they don't fit within the narrative which they believe they control, it won't last and alter the underlying dynamics of this race. the romney campaign fears that might be true but wants to try its very best to alter that narrative. >> what about president obama? will we see the competitive president obama that privately people say really dislikes mitt romney? or will we see the cool, constitutional law professor. >> both. because to win, because he's competitive, he needs to be cool. he knows that. that's the one overriding concern presented to him by his advisers. don't freak out. don't get anxious. don't get publicly visibly
7:12 am
irritable. >> a lot of people support mitt romney over the weekend on the sunday talk shows were saying he has to be very aggressive. he really has to take it to the president. >> well, what happens in presidential debates is you have two fundamental goals as the candidate. drive your message and knock your opponent off his. and so to knock the president off his message the romney campaign knows governor romney has to be unrelenting. >> romney has an op-ed talking about his view on foreign policy. there seems to be some question within the romney camp as to whether they should even be talking about foreign policy. >> this has been an ongoing debate since the libya crisis. and in the immediate hours after that when governor romney stepped into this, his advisers said we're going to begin to prosecute this larger. if you look at that op-ed, it's not just about foreign policy. it's about american trajectory in the early part of the 21st century. governor romney brings that to the table, foreign policy, economic policy, a recovery that
7:13 am
barely lly deserves the name. >> the force of gravity argument. the obama campaign, the president is doing better than you would expect. because of the economic -- >> every bit of historical data would tell us to expect. absolutely. >> why is that? >> we at national journal have a cover story, ask not the tactical question, who's got the better tactics. if there's something happening to the american psyche about expectations for economic growth and expectations of anyone in the political class to change their life for the better. we've concluded based on a lot of interviews we've diminished our expectation. not only about washington, but what the economy feels like and looks like. the country is numbed and traumatized by recent economic events. oddly enough that core underlying hopelessness is benefiting the candidate who brought a campaign message of hope four years ago. >> many people think the president could not do that much about it to influence the economy? >> the president, the congress and they're not really sure any idea right now is the one or the set of one ideas to transform
7:14 am
our economy from a low lying recovery to something that's better and more productive in a globalized very competitive economy. >> major garrett. he's brilliant, right? >> yes. >> thank you very much. last night's "60 minutes" also showed us lesley stahl's revealing interview with arnold schwarzenegger. how he describes the way his wife, maria shriver confronted him about his affair with the family housekeeper and the child they had together. >> maria wants to have a meeting with your marriage counselor. tell us about that meeting. >> that particular visit that you talk about was the visit where she then said, hey, i think that joseph is your kid. and am i off here on this or not? and i said you're absolutely correct. and i had to face up to that, which i have been kind of hiding but no one knew about.
7:15 am
and that i knew about at that point maybe for five, six years or so. >> you just said, you're absolutely right? >> you're absolutely right, and i'm sorry. it was very painful for her. she was very disappointed. >> maria asked you, why didn't you tell me? what did you say? >> that i did not know how to. >> you didn't know how to tell her? >> how to tell her without worrying about, you know, that it would get out or whatever. >> and that she'd leave you while you were still governor. >> i don't think that that was as much an issue as just how do i keep this, you know, under wraps. >> tell us how it happened. this is a woman that worked in your house. >> exactly. and i found out about it kind of seven years in or eight years in. >> wait, wait, wait.
7:16 am
you -- you have this relationship. nine months later she's -- has a baby. didn't you say, oh, my god, my baby? >> no, no. >> you never -- you never -- it never crossed your mind? >> no. she was with a man. so no. >> schwarzenegger gave that "60 minutes" interview just before releasing his new memoir "total recall." the publisher simon and schuster is owned by cbs. we'll talk with lesley stahl in our next half hour. we're going to have portions of that interview that you did not hear last night. time to show you some of the this morning's headlines from around the globe.

7:33 am
on the marriage. being in sacramento and spending that much time and doing the people's work and i've heard so many times and maria warned me at the beginning that a lot of relationships, when you're a politician, have a tendency of falling apart or getting hit. because of having to spend so much time on your work and i saw it all of a sudden happening that i got so engrossed in the work and i got so kind of fanatic about it to solving the problems that many times we had budget discussions to midnight, to 6:00 in the morning and there was a vote and all this stuff coming up, initiatives were coming up, i had to be out campaigning and raising money and there was such a big commitment and i had to follow through. all of a sudden i had a scene which i describe also in the book where i came home and one
7:34 am
of my kids started crying and saying daddy you didn't come to my recital. then the next kid said daddy you didn't come to my football game. then my daughter said dad you didn't come to my dance and you're never around. all of a sudden all the kids were crying and maria was saying go ahead, just express yourself kids i think daddy needs to hear that. >> the former california governor's memoir total recall goes on sale today. it's published busy monday and shuster, a division of cbs. lesley stahl is here this morning. good morning. did maria did not see the book, did not know it was coming? >> right. what i didn't know until very recently is that she actually asked to see the book and arnold said no. as you heard him in this clip he was always afraid that if he told her she would tell her brothers or family and it would leak out. >> it did. >> well, in this case, no. >> he said that i thought.
7:35 am
>> he said that. i don't know why he didn't give her the book, but i know that she feels blind sided. that's a quote by somebody in the family. she feels blind sided that book came out or leaked out and she hadn't read it. >> why didn't she want to talk to you? >> i tried. >> i know you did. >> well, i can't speak for her. i don't like being in the position of having to either pass moral judgments on anybody. or to say something i don't know for sure. >> do we believe that he tried? is this part of the conversation, hard enough, tried hard enough to save the marriage after the affair became clear? >> that's a good question. you know, the marriage didn't break right way. there were about three months. i have no idea what happened in those three months at all. he told us and says in the book over and over he wants the

prosecutor. only now as he's about to turn 32 does he say he's ready to join the family business. >> why did he decide to do it after all those other things? >> reporter: he says if you're going to get into politics especially as a kennedy, you have to be absolutely certain it's what you want to do. if you're kind of faking it, people will pick up on it immediately and will vote against you. he said only now is he absolutely certain. it helps that a seat opened up and that he's a kennedy. >> i like the sound of the train, chip. >> that adds to the ambiance. how involved is the family, chip? >> reporter: this is very much a family campaign as all kennedy campaigns are. his twin brother matt has been out there, he has cousins out there. his father joe, the former congressman and ethel kennedy, his grandmother has been out there, too. >> chip, thank you. tomorrow we'll hear from the candidate's cousin, that would be caroline kennedy. her father's secret oval office
